Lately I've dabbled a little in three games: CrossCode on Steam, as well as Mario Odyssey and Mario+Rabbids.

I finished Wolfenstien the new colossus. Didn't like the game as I thought I would. I felt it was just a bit too negative for my tastes. I get that the Nazis are like that but i think they emphasised on that a little too much. At least in the original games (even the PS3 one that came out before The New Order and Oldblood) they felt more fun and not nearly as negative.

Overall i felt The New Order was the better game then The New Collossus. If they decide to do another Wolfenstien they should make the game feel more enjoyable and not so negative.

I agree with you that The New Order was better. Much more enjoyable than this new one.

One thing that I really liked was the ubercommander missions, though. And the fact that you can dual-wield a shotgun and an assault rifle at the same time. Not even those heavy-armored guys stand a chance up close with that combination.

Dual-wielding was something i only found out by accident. But I never did use it. It just seemed more fun in N64's Goldeneye.

It wasn't something that felt practical at first, so I avoided it entirely on The New Order. But on The New Colossus, it's a must for higher difficulties, especially Death Incarnate. When you have enemies swarm in close on your corner, you can just let them have it with both guns at once, and it makes really short work of them.



Played a few games I got for free on PS Plus a while back: Journey and Furi. Journey was just kind of boring to me. Furi is excellent, though. Nice one-on-one gun/sword battles, and the retrowave music is pretty nice, too.

Played a quick game of Rastan on the Taito Collection. I don't ever remember that game not allowing continues on the last level. I could've sworn I've beaten it before, but then again, I seriously doubt I could finish the final level on one credit. (That sort of restriction in older games is total bullshit, IMO...right up there with DMC-style performance grading on my list of gaming pet peeves)

Taito games are known to do such a thing, give you all the continues in the world.....till you reach the last stage, then the game ditches them. Capcom did the exact same thing with 1943 Kai for the Japanese version. US version, you can continue to win, Japanese version tells you, don't die on the last stage, or you're finished. I personally don't mind games doing this, makes you really have to get good if you want to win, if not, keep trying till you do.

In the middle of Dying Light. If I knew it was so similar to Dead Island, I wouldn't have bothered. It's growing on me, though. I like it better than Dead Island...might as well stick with it and see where it goes.

It's nearly that time of year where I'll have some time to game properly again. I plan to do Metroid 3ds on fusion mode and complete botw and ffxv, finally.

I just played through Axiom Verge on my Wii U. Gotta say, as much as people rag on the game and criticize it for not being on par with Metroid I and II , I actually liked it better...

Not up to Super Metroid , for sure. But It's funny seeing people mocking Axiom for not having as good of a story as the original Metroid. Especially considering the original game had just a few scant lines of text in comparison. Axiom's  was a bit too muddied in it's lore, but I would say that a story is much more evident when compared to Metroid...

I LOVED Axiom Verge!  The creator's story gives me a little hope too that maybe I could turn something from my little sideshow-circus of game ideas into a pet project and eventually a real game.

Picked up myself a Switch earlier today and along with it, Breath of the Wild. I'm enjoying the game so far and it is nice to come back to the decline era of the Zelda series that we started with during the NEs era. Maybe I was just waiting for the right kind of 3D Zelda to come along to get back into the series and this title seems to be it.

There is never enough Rosenkreuzstilette Freudenstachel stuff... more...MORE...! It's one of the most exciting things for me in 2017 that the English version was eventually released.

For now I'm so deep into LOST VALLEY 2003 by MIG... In order to dig up the truth of why MIG 's level design prior Lecarde Chronicles being so evil...
EDIT: I eventually stuck at the very north wasteland of the valleys. Two goddamn days wasted and still didn't get clue to break through the rock area. Damn that is such a hell for a puzzle...
